Where: Heron Foods, Limited Jackson Way, Melton East, Yorkshire, HU14 3HJ
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Karl Dawson

This is a great opportunity to visit Heron Foods Purpose Built Distribution centre in Hull. The event will be a presentation, followed by a tour.

Heron Food's story is one of success, growth and development. They are very proud of their history, their staff and their achievement of serving people with high quality, low priced groceries. The first Heron store opened in 1979 on Holderness Road in Hull and proved to be an immediate success with local people. Further Heron stores were opened in quick succession throughout Hull and the East Riding and then further afield in Lincolnshire and South and North Yorkshire.

In February 2003 the Company changed hands, but remained a family business and was acquired by the present management team. Heron Foods now trade from over 240 stores, employ over 3000 people and are constantly striving to expand and spread our message of quality and value throughout the country.

Heron Foods was ranked twelfth by turnover in The Grocer magazine’s survey of the top fifty independent grocery retailers (The Grocer magazine 13th March 2014) based on turnover in the year to 31st March 2014. In 2009 they moved away from our ageing cold store and warehouse operation in West Hull to a purpose built facility measuring 270,000 square feet at Melton in East Yorkshire, just to the West of Hull, which has been designed to enable the Company to continue with its ambitious growth plans.

Best Practice in Analytics and ForecastingBook Now

End Date:27/03/2017 20:30
Event Code:LRS0338


When: 27th March 2017, 18:00 (for 19:00) - 20:30
Where: Central London

Speaker:  Jonas Hatem, MD, Mobius UK

Jonas, who is an active member of the group, will be covering the following areas:

  •  How to (not) measure forecast performance
  • The cost of mistakes and
  • Why incentivising staff on forecast accuracy is usually a bad idea

The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004.  It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers.  The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting.  We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London.  Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards.  We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group.  The environment is very informal.  The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.

We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.

A light buffet will also be provided.

The Implementation of Southampton's Clean Air ZoneBook Now
Start Date:29/03/2017 18:45
End Date:29/03/2017 21:00
Event Code:HDG0337

When: 29 March 2017, 18:45 - 21:00 (Reg:18:30)
Where: Solent Conference Centre, East Park Terrace Campus of Southampton Solent University, Southampton, SO14 0LY
Meeting Point: The Beech Room (on Level 2) of the Solent Conference Centre 

Speaker: Neil Tuck, Sustainable Transport Programme Manager, Southampton City Council

Any response to the growing concern about urban air quality has implications for all of us in the transport industry. Southampton is one of the five British cities that are introducing Clean Air Zones (CAZs) in order to meet the challenge of satisfying both civic and governmental demands for this specific environmental improvement. Whilst it will be the road transport sector that must make the most significant changes, Southampton's role as the port of choice for the world's largest cruise ships and vehicle and container carriers means that there will also be implications for maritime carriers. Our speaker will tell us how the Southampton CAZ will be introduced in 2019 and this means that it becomes essential listening for our CILT members who are active in all aspects of transport.

Refreshments will be provided.

Webinar - How Powerful 3PL Enabled Servitisation has been Delivering Incredible Results for OEMs, 3PLs and their CustomersBook Now
Start Date:03/04/2017 14:00
End Date:03/04/2017 15:00
Event Code:WR0362

 When: 3 April 2017, 2pm

 Speaker: Adrian Botham, Director at Servispart Consulting

The inaugural event from the new S&OP, Service and Servitisation Forum

We know servitisation can be a transformational game changer for manufacturers looking to increase growth, improve competitiveness and increase customer retention, but what about their customers and industry partners? What are the opportunities for them, if any?

Servitisation is often described by academics as a long, complicated process but it doesn’t have to be that way. Some manufacturers are accelerating their service transformation process and creating more value for their customers via the use of innovative 3PL partnering.

One of the UK’s leading servitisation and aftermarket specialists, Adrian Botham, will present, discuss and explore a real-life practical example of how partnering with a 3PL enabled an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to access new business opportunities with dramatic benefits for its customer too.

The webinar will be held on 3 April 2017, from 14:00 and consist of a 30-40 minute presentation to allow time for questions. Those who register and fail to attend will still be able to access a recording of the webinar for a short time afterwards but will obviously lose the opportunity to ask questions during the live webinar. We therefore encourage all registrants to attend live.
